At 34 years old, it seems that all of Serena Williams’ tennis matches make history and on Sunday July 3, the world No. 1 cruised past German Annika Beck 6-3, 6-0 in the third round of Wimbledon Tennis Championships in just 51 minutes, giving her a 300th career win at a Grand Slam.

Williams passes Chris Evert at 299, and is now just six major victories behind Martina Navratilova, the all-time record holder. “Oh gosh really?” A bewildered Williams said when a BBC commentator told her of the stat. “I had no idea.”

Williams is now 82-10 at Wimbledon as she aims to defend her title here and tie Steffi Graf for a different record: Most Grand Slam titles in the Open era, at 22. She is 755-123 overall in her career.
